With the above photo, Simidele captioned on her IG page:

"Victory is mine! My heart is full. I’m overflowing with joy. I answered the call and served Nigeria with all my strength. This shining moment will live on in time forever. The world has now seen the first Nigerian, African and Black woman compete in the Skeleton at the Winter Olympics. The barrier is broken. The door is now open. The legacy is in place & the trail has been blazed for this chosen generation and those still to come. We will keep rising! πŸ“Έ@gettysport πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬☠️πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎ✊πŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΏ❄️πŸ…#sleighsimisleigh #winterolympics#breakingbarriers #historymaker#blackhistorymonth #blackgirlmagic"

Winning the game is not as important as the courage she summon to break the barrier, thereby  opening the floor for more African athletes especially females to emerge and break the norm in all areas of sports and beyond.

She made Nigeria and Africa as a whole proud and we are more joyful to call her a Nigerian super woman.


Is a well done to Simidele, she indeed conquer.
